During tours, we do our best to cover setlists in real-time on Twitter. If you want to tweet a show in, just DM or @ us on the day and tell us to watch your stream that night.
Tori will be touring in 2014 to support the release of Unrepentant Geraldines. The European legs runs from May through June and the North American legs spans July and August. We do not know if additional dates elsewhere will be added.
VH1’s 100 Greatest Women In Music is being aired this week and, rather than let people wait, they spilled the beans by posting the complete list on their Tuner music blog. As we hoped, Tori does make an appearance on the list, in the 54th spot. Not a bad showing at all and, as she showed up in the 71st spot the last time VH1 produced a series on this subject in 1999, it’s a move upwards.
That position means Tori will be included in tonight’s (Wednesday’s) airing of the show when they cover places #60 through #41. The episode premieres at 10:00 PM Eastern and Pacific with multiple rebroadcasts and, eventually, clips and full episodes on vh1.com. So, if you’re only interested in what they have to say about Ms. Amos, tonight’s is the one to watch.
Needless to say, in a list of 100 greatest anythings, there is bound to be some contention and this one is no exception. There are some surprising omissions and unexpected inclusions, not to mention interesting ordering. In VH1’s defense, they were primarily focused on popular music from the past twenty or so years so some older groundbreakers (Joni Mitchell, Carole King, etc.) were left off while some recent powerhouses (Adele, Nicki Minaj, etc.) slipped on. Personally, we’re not too worked up about it given the nature of these things and are just pleased to see that Tori, despite her dimiinished popularity, remains well-ensconced in the echelons of female performers.
